Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Hampshire  /  Timsbury
Timsbury is a village located in Hampshire, England, near the town of Romsey. It lies mainly along the A3057 road running north from Romsey towards Stockbridge, and shares a boundary with the village of Michelmersh (where the Post Office affirm the 2011 Census population is included).It has a population of approximately 400.HistoryThe name "Timsbury" is derived from the Old English timber + byrig (dative of burh), meaning 'timber fort or manor'.Timsbury has grown from a traditional village centred on the Manor House (now split into many dwellings) and the Church of St Andrew. Although there may have been a Saxon church, the current Grade II listed building dates from around the early 15th century and was badly damaged by fire on 9 March 2014.Historically, Edmund Sharp and his wife Alice moved from the county of Berkshire to Timsbury towards the end of the seventeenth century. A direct descendant of Edmund Sharp was Richard Sharp (politician), once hailed as possibly being the most popular man in Georgian London.An interesting anecdote has survived concerning one of Edmund's sons, Richard, who, born in 1665 gained a reputation as an accomplished wrestler and ‘cudgeller’ in the area. Even in those days cudgelling was a very old custom and especially popular in the West of England where great pride was attached to skills which were often handed from father to son. It was a fast and furious activity conducted brutally using a short club and the expression ‘to break a head’ was associated with the cudgeller’s sport since the victor was he who first drew blood from a gash to the head.
